Over the course of two days, The Shield each captured gold and Triple H was knocked out of commission by Mr. Perfect’s son. I’d already chalk that up as a win. On top of it all, we had a pretty solid PPV on Sunday at Extreme Rules… as well as a thoroughly entertaining Raw with a match of the year candidate showcasing The Shield vs Team Hell No + Kofi Kingston. Not a whole lot to complain about this week, but I’m sure we’ll find a way.

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
